    Yes they will accept your labs. I'd be upfront about the hcg. If she knows about bioidentical hormones she will have heard of hcg and probably will approve of it. Many of them prescribe it.

    Personally, I wouldn't order any progesterone off Amazon. It's way weak and you'll have to take more to get a good value which will cost you more. I'd get it from alldaychemist or wait and let the doctor prescribe, even better.

    Please someone shoot me now

    Way harder than I thought to get a bio identical.
    The one I have a n appt with on the 22nd, wants to know WHAT RELIGION I am on my intake form, RED FLAG RED FLAG.
    Also, they seems to think it odd I had my own labwork but in the end accepted it or will.
    they are only open a few hours each day mond thru thurs only. they also say I need a D3 test??

    Weird feeling with them, $295.00 consult only fee, is that normal?
    The ones in Naperville were $595.00 for consult only

    Still researching, found a DC in Rockford who does it, lm and sent email. Oh, website claims free consultation.

    I never get headaches(ha ha that is one symptom I don't have) I have one now.

    Again, thanks for advice, what to look for say etc,
    will resume reading stop madness tomorrow

    $300 isn't bad for a consult. They will spend about an hour with you usually which is why it's so expensive. The religion thing, yeah that is weird. D3 affects your immune system so some docs like to get that. It's not expensive if you want to get it. A free consultation might indicate he fills the prescriptions in house and gets his money that way. I saw one like that. I liked him but over time it was a little more expensive than just getting my scripts filled where I wanted.

    Colleen, my docs refuse to treat based on my TSH. . That's why I was warning Kansas that with her TSH, they may not treat.

    oh, and my free t3 was really low.

    Wow, any doctor should say you are hypothyroid, Kats. I'd find another one!

    What Barb means is that with your TSH just over 1, they may say you're fine even though your free t3 and free t4 are low. But the doctors we've found should be good.

    Thanks yes we are narrowing in on some okay docs
    I think Kats is preparing me for what I already experiences" being patted on the head and telling me .. I'm just old" duh, Doctor Bloody Obvious, now what about my hormones!

    A bioidentical doctor won't tell you that. They want to take your hormones to what they were in your twenties.

    You know, I got to thinking--there are some foods you could do the fat fast with. Avocados, nuts, especially macadamia nuts. Bulletproof coffee, mct oil.
